A Contest, A Month of Gratitude, and NaNoWriMo

November promises to be a busy month!

Mary over at Sketches by Mary is hosting a  

Holiday Treat Giveaway!
  The winner of this giveaway will end up with lots of loot!

Here is what the winner will receive:

12 Tealight Candles

1 Smelly Jelly

1 Creamy Aloe Foot Butter

Rules for Entering:

First, become a follower of Sketches by Mary.

Second, leave a comment telling her what kind of fragrances you prefer.  (Mary has several choices to choose from.)

You can increase you chances of winning by blogging about this contest. Be sure and add a link back to Mary’s site. Then send Mary an email letting her know you are blogging about her Holiday Treat Giveaway. You will need to send an email, letting Mary know when you post about the giveaway. You’ll find her email addy on her site.

Contest begins ~ November 1 and runs through November 15.

Now, hurry! (You know you want that foot butter!)

Beginning November 1st, Brenda ~ Garden of Learning ~ has challenged bloggers to join her in posting one thing they are grateful for each day for the month. I am posting this now, so you have a little time to blog-hop over and get signed up.

Can you believe it is nearly November? Remember, thirty days of Gratitude! See you Monday!

Monday, is also the first day for NaNoWriMo!

November is when authors and would be authors race to see if they can put 50,000 words on paper in 30 days! You can check out the NaNo website for all the details and you can join their forum and visit with other writers who are participating!  This November Writing project brings Professional and Amateur writers from all over the world together.

By the way, that is roughly just under 1700 words per day and it is difficult to achieve! If you miss a day, it is the pits hard to catch up!

Your writing doesn’t have to be perfect! What NaNo does is encourage writers to put their ideas on paper and write that first draft (typos and all).

And while I have never finished, it is fun to try!

Okay, I think this is going to wrap it up for this Sonday! May the month of November be filled with good things for you and your family.
